policies for president obama, looking to support education, not wanting to see the health care cuts, those policies -- supporting women -- are much more popular than mitt romney's policies. i think that the obama team is going to double down on that over the next few weeks. >> brett, your reaction to that? >> well, you know, on wednesday night, those policies didn't look so good. a debate's about a competition of ideas, especially a political debate. so the president's got to be able to defend those policies if they truly are superior, and on wednesday night he didn't do a very good job of doing that. >> columnist david brooks and peggy noonan praised romney's performance after its missteps in recent weeks. brooks writing this. romney finally emerged from the fog and at long last began the process of offering a more authentic version of himself. noonan wrote this, america got its first sustained look at the good and competent mr. romney. how much do you think does the public support of leading conservatives like the two of them help romney, not just with republicans but with undecid

student loans are getting education for their money. they're not spending it on cars or clothes. other debt has been going down. this is taking a long time, and it's going to continue to take a long time, but in these very slow and almost imperceptible ways, the economy is healing. >> is there any reason to believe that when those new job numbers come out just four days before election day, that they wouldn't be consistent with this kind of pacing? something that we saw on friday? >> well, as ali pointed out, those job numbers are volatile and they zigzag. that pattern has been in place, and we did see some very odd patterns. i'm sure there was no fixing of the numbers, but the numbers were odd. but these numbers often get sort of smoothed out over time. they recount, they become more accurate over time. we could see another zig in the other direction when that report comes out. some economists say they would not be surprised at all if the unemployment rate went back up to 8% or above 8%. that might straighten out some of the anomalies in the latest report. plus, when more people start

, education, and look at the map today. every state that becomes lighter in this picture is a state where there was an improvement in the unemployment rate over that period of time. i will tell you there, ray great many of them out here. the unemployment rate for ohio, changed 7.2%. lock at the massive change in the country in terms of the improvement in terms of states that are no longer losing jobs, but now making jobs. to make that happen, the bureau of labor statistics says you had to have a lot of job creation. 4.4 million jobs created. what you don't hear so much about, we lost 4.3 million jobs in the dark days. the net gain according to the net record, is only 125,000 jobs. based on that even though the president did create a lot of jobs, when you look at that, look at the extent of his claim, 5 million jobs created, we have to say that's simply false. i know many democrats will say that's because the bush years and the economy that's left. the numbers simply don't add up the way the president would like them to. wolf. >> mitt romney made a strong claim, 23 million people out of wo

. 33% say it's education. but there's also guns, abortion, same-sex marriage. we all know that the economy is actually issue number one with most voters, but social issues still play a big part for voters in making their final decision. joining me now to talk about the potential impact of these issues, cnn contributor maria cardona and amy holmes, anchor of "real news on the blaze." good to see both of you. maria, what's number one in your book in terms of social issues? >> well, it's interesting, because while you mentioned health care, i think a lot of voters also see health care as an economic issue, because that's the number one concern when they look at health care is costs, and what that is going to mean for their family. so i think health care is a big issue. and in some respects, if it's looked at as a social issue, i think it actually helps the president because he's the one who was seen as putting health care out there and even though the health care act itself is not incredibly popular, pieces of it -- the fact that those pieces have actually helped families do what they

come in education and health care and business services and retail. every state that is lighter in color where they are no longer losing jobs or, in some cases, gaining jobs. ohio, 7.2% unemployment now. that is better than the national average. the bureau of labor statistics says to make that happen, we, indeed, had to create a lot of jobs. how many? by their count? 4.4 million so far. but here is what is not mentioned much. 4.3 million were lost during the bad days. so the net gain is only about 125,000 and that falls short of the president's claim that he created 5 million jobs. it's just a little bit too much of a stretch. we have to call that claim false. even though many democrats will say in a heartbeat, look. he inherited a bad economy from george bush. many voters agree with that. nonetheless the numbers don't quite add up. what about mitt romney's claim about 23 million people unemployed? we need context and let me bring some tools up here to talk about this. median income in this country is about $51,000. here are categories we can look at. mid wage and low wage and high
